About the Institute
LMSI I is a highly interactive experience that brings together tried-and-true management principles with best practices in libraries. Over 3 days, expert DJA facilitators engage up to 40 participants in case studies, personal reflection, practical application, and group discussions on the following principles and skills that are key to effective management:
Management in context
Power dynamics and influencing skills
Participatory decision making
The helping relationship
Coaching for performance
The content is designed to be particularly beneficial for supervisors, department heads, coordinators, managers, administrators, team and project leaders, or anyone interested in growing as a leader or manager. Widely respected across the library profession, all DJA programs are designed with the adult learner in mind and have a strong reputation of equity, diversity, and inclusion; collaborative learning; practical application; and expert facilitation.
For all participants, visits to libraries at Duke, North Carolina Central University (NCCU), North Carolina State University (NCSU), and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill) may be arranged depending on interest.
